What’s Your Next Act?


Life is short but, somehow, careers are long. I’m coming up on one of those big birthdays—the kind with the zero in it—and I’ve been reflecting on second, third, or even fourth acts.

I had a great run in television, heading communications for Sony, Universal and Turner Broadcasting in my first career. It was a hoot promoting shows from Married…With Children to Dr. Phil. And I loved my second career as an executive coach, speaker and author of six non-fiction books, working with leaders at organizations including Amazon, Honda, Intel, Marriott, Microsoft, Novo Nordisk, Kellogg’s, Warner Bros. and many more.

Now I want to fill you in on my next act.

As of May 1, I’ll no longer be working with one-on-one coaching clients, though I’m still delivering keynotes and workshops. And I’ll still be writing about careers and leadership, but you’ll definitely notice I’m posting more about creativity, books, and writing.

I’m proud to share I’m making the shift to writing fiction full-time. Penguin Random House is publishing my debut novel Malibu Summer, about love, grief, and television on May 21. And I’d love your support in ordering my book or letting me visit your book club (in person or on Zoom).

I hope you’re planning your next act. It may not happen overnight. Mine certainly didn’t. But it will happen if you are clear on what you want and willing to work for it.

After all, if I can have three careers, so can you.
